Uppsala University is a comprehensive research-intensive university with a strong international standing. Our mission is to pursue top-quality research and education and to interact constructively with society. Our most important assets are all the individuals whose curiosity and dedication make Uppsala University one of Sweden’s most exciting workplaces. Uppsala University has 42,000 students, 7,000 employees and a turnover of SEK 6.7 billion. We are announcing four positions, out of which two Holocaust and Genocide Studies and two in Minority Studies.

The positions will be placed at the Hugo Valentin Centre (HVC), which is an interdisciplinary unit at the Department of History. The HVC has a focus on research and education in two particular fields: first, cultural, social and political phenomena and processes of change related to the ethnic dimension of human life and, second, Holocaust and genocide studies. To these subject fields belong for instance minority studies, multilingualism, ethnic relations, Balkan studies, Holocaust history, the study of genocide and similar atrocities, as well as the effect of violence on individuals and society. Research is carried out from Nordic as well as wider international perspectives, where culture, language, history, religion and politics are natural points of departure for the activities. HVC has the task to coordinate the research and teaching activities concerning the activity National minorities in Sweden (NAMIS) and to develop contract teaching courses. Teaching is primarily carried within the framework of the Master Programme in Holocaust and Genocide Studies, but also in the fields of minority studies, socio-linguistics and nationalism. For further information about the positions and a direct access to the online application system, please follow the links below:
